ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY CURRENT STATUS REPORT
Monday, March 23, 2009 12:46 PM AKDT (Monday, March 23, 2009 20:46 UTC)


REDOUBT VOLCANO (CAVW #1103-03-)
60°29'7" N 152°44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WARNING
Current Aviation Color Code: RED

The eruption of Redoubt volcano that began last night continues. AVO remains at Avation Color Code RED and Alert Level WARNING.

Seismic unrest remains elevated and volcanic tremor is ongoing. Since 5:00 AKDT, no ash has been visible in radar, suggesting that if ash emission is occurring, it is below approximately 13,000 ft asl and/or too fine to be detected. Poor weather at the volcano currently hinders visual observations.

AVO has an observation flight in progress and hopefully conditions will permit some inspection of the volcano.

Further explosive activity could occur with little or no warning, and could occur intermittently for weeks or months. AVO remains staffed 24 hours per day will issue further information as it becomes available.
